We are pleased to present a combination of conceptual and research papers in this issue. A paper by Burke, Nolan, and Rheingold takes a comprehensive look at Nel Noddings' care theory and considers specific examples of when it can be useful for examining current practices and strengthening its presence in outdoor education. Jostad, Paisley, and Gookin present a unique paper investigating what students on semester-length courses at the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS) learn that they may not learn from shorter courses. Their findings are related to the concept of overlearning and begin to document what students learn on semester-based wilderness courses.
